These curtains are absolutely what I was looking for! The color is almost exactly like the swatch in the photo shows. They look amazing inside, and from the outside looking in! They do not come with the hold back shown in the photo, at least mine didn't, so you definitely need hold backs. I spent over $1,000 on curtains for another set of windows at *****, and these ones look way better, and only cost me a total of $****. LOVE THEM!
